romney as his own man. he's a vehicle for a republican party that has become very extremist and a vehicle for a party that also is trying to straddle many different factions and fractions, but extremism has won out. so tomorrow, it's not going to be the lincoln/douglas debates, we'll hear massaged talking points and debates have not been so decisive except when the races are very already tight, kennedy/nixon, gore/bush, but we may well see the narrative of a 1% romney which we've seen reinforcing the 47%. video and that -- and out of touch with not only his own being who he was, but with ordinary voters, average people in this country. >> i'm -- i'm eager to see how romney deals with follow-up questions. ryan's stuff the contention i don't have enough time, what i'm trying to basically tear apart the american social compact, you know, in some -- if you interpret it in one way but massively overhaul this nation's sort of tax plan, but i don't have time to get into the details, president obama's going to press him on this. >> well, right. well, one, you a situation where, you know, mitt rom
republicans that it will a lot to. mitt romney loses, paul ryan will still be the budget chairman. democrats can line up all these big spending initiatives if they want to, but the fact is that the house is still going to be majority republican. if republicans don't take back the senate is going to be the same situation that we have ad for the past two years. i would say that they're going to go as far as trying to decorate the office before they have it. we might see another turnaround election in the year 2014 like we did in 2010 if they continue to push this big spending big government. neil: you're not giving up on spending. it almost sounded like you were. >> well, i am just simply saying if they are going to go with decorating the office. neil: thank you very, very much. don't look now, but he is back. remember caught 20 years later. back with a vengeance, and a new warning. deep in debt. ross perot fears we are easy date to be taken down. a former clinton press secretary, debate commission on those warnings from a guy who two decades ago almost up into the presidential race. very goo

. everybody has been waiting to find out if mitt romney looks like such a losing prospect that republicans will be cut lose to essentially campaign on their own to campaign against them. but campaigning on the assumption that it mitt romney is going to lose? that's something new. and it's even weirder when voiced by scott brown tonight. that's coming up. >>> it seems to me first of all from what i understand from doctors, that's really rare. if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> that's the senate candidate from missouri this year, congressman todd akin. one of the things lost as soon as he said what he said about legitimate rape is his democratic opponent claire mccaskill had hand selected todd akin to be her opponent before he ever made the comments about rape. claire mccaskill used campaign money to run ads that were for todd akin advertising him to republican primary voters as the true conservative in the race. that's because claire mccaskill knew before he made his rape comments that he's the kind of guy who would make comments lik
in that race bob casey ahead of his republican challenger by eight points. as mitt romney's, shall we say, second place standing starts to look like more and more of a permanent residence as it seems like a long shot for winning the presidency, the down ticket effect of that is starting to become a bigger part of the conversation. you saw a manifestation of that last week on this show when nancy pelosi came on this show and said, essentially, democrats can win back the house. nancy pelosi said not only is she confident that democrats can get the 25 seats they need to take e back control of the house, which is a huge number, she says she, quote, liked to have 35 seats, which would be a lot. and while it is news worthy that the democrats think they can take back the house, it should be said that a number of other observers looking at the same prospect are call k the idea that the democrats could take back the house pretty much impossible. politico publishing a piece on it. one of the consequences of republicans winning so many seats in the state legislatures in the big election of 2010 is t
and goad the republican nominee into proving him wrong. it's a lose/lose proposition for romney because any answer will invite further criticism. that's my point, in goading him into saying what deductions he would get rid of, he'll either not say, which will make him look like he's hiding out during the debate with jim lehrer saying tell us, tell us, tell us, he's saying no, no, no, or he's beginning to tease and show some leg and say i'm thinking about something to do with the home mortgage thing or a charitable cap or something less on state and local. in any case they will go through the roof, the voters, the next day and the headline writers. >> that's really smart because the question he should be asked that would smoke him out is, do you rule out limiting or eliminating the home interest mortgage deduction, pell grants for -- that send middle class kids to college, the deductions for state and local taxes. if he says i wouldn't touch the deduction for state and local taxes, he opens the door for a continuing process of would you touch this or touch that. if he doesn't answer it, ever
't wait to get to that one. >>> we're going to visit that parallel republican universe where mitt romney leads, by the way, in every poll in that universe. the republicans really believe in a liberal conspiracy involving all the pollsters of this country left and right, even the fox pollsters? maybe they just don't accept the legitimacy of a democratic president, any democratic president. >>> let me finish with my belief that presidential debates are often unfair and almost always unpredictable. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> new polling from some key midwestern battlegrounds. first to ohio. a new ppp poll, president obama's lead there is four points, 49% to 45%. ppp tends to lean democratic, but the new "columbus dispatch" poll shows the president with a lead more than twice as big. he's up nine in the newspaper poll. 51%/42%. in iowa, a new "des moines register" poll has the president up 49%/45%. that's been a tricky state, iowa. we'll be right back. ♪ doing it with a cold, just not going to happen. vicks dayquil -- powerful non-drowsy 6-symptom cold & flu relief.

of all of the polls that have been out lately there has been some movement of republican money. there have been in fact fox business news is reporting that some of mitt romney's new york donors are taking their money to the house and senate. and that trend reflects an increasing level of anxiety both with the nature of the romney campaign, and polls show president obama has a lead in swing states that some republicans think is insurmountable. do you think it's too soon? >> yes. you are going to see some anxiety, you are at a football game, and people start leaving for the exits way too early. >> jennifer: i think we're going to have to follow the money. though. peter after all of the millions that have already been donated how important it is for campaigns to get new funds with a month to go especially if there is a feeling that you are in a ship that is sinking? >> it is really important because you really need that last-minute push and it's not just television advertising, or the big bucks for station voters. it's to open the offices for the last month

joking about kicking out of the room. metaphorically, a lot of republicans want to see mitt romney do just that to the president. they want to see him verbally beat him up and make the points that you've made crystal clear and win the argument. but there's another argument that says that one of mitt romney's problems is he's not likeable enough and he may need to turn on the kind of easy ronald reagan charm which he deployed so successfully in debate. it's a fine line, isn't it, between being hard and aggressive and making a point, but also coming over as likeable. >> right. and piers, really, the way to deal with that, and i think this is true for any debate but especially one where the stakes are so high for the country, is to stick to what you want to do, to stick to the substance of the issues, where the country is with the bad economy, with the high deficit, and what you want to do about it. i think if you're passionate about that or a little bit angry or indignant about that, i think people understand, and i think that's what governor romney's going to do. >> you're a republican
the split is between president obama and mitt romney. but bill mcinturf the republican pollster was saying it's going to have to have some kind of jolt to make the race not as stable as it looks right now. >> thanks so much. you never know. >> remember poland and eastern europe and several of the other races that were decided by things that happen late in the race. thank you very much. >>> and to chris cizilla. joining me from denver, with an insider's perspective, the president's debate preparations, robert gibbs, senior adviser to the obama campaign and the president's former press secretary. you have been there, done that. you know this president. you know him as a candidate. what is going on behind the scenes today? >> well look, i know they're doing, you know, they're doing some prep, some mock debates, obviously, you know, the president's got a very busy day job that's taking him away from time to do this sort of thing and quite frankly it's been four years, you know, since he's been in this arena. so i know he's anxious and excited to get in front of the american people and talk spe
an election coming out of it. i want to take you back decades and indulge me. mitt romney, a republican candidate for governor in bluer than blue massachusetts. in mere weeks he went to a five-point winner on election night. and you know something? the debates had a whole lot to do with that. matt viser is a political reporter who has just written a great piece on the '02 race and mitt romney's political resourcefulness. joining me live. great story and i think, you know, either i'm just too young to really remembered it, which i think is not true, but i think a lot of people don't know that mitt had this remarkable turn around. how did he do it? >> yeah, i mean, in 2002, really the only political race he's actually won, he was behind. i mean he was leading in the polls early on, he faltered, he was behind by six points with six weeks to go. he was -- there was an 18-point gender gap. people favored his opponent shannon o'brien. and he had a meeting with his advisers and they decided to shift gears. they went after her a lot more. they dropped some of the family friendly ad with ann, an

the scenes, republicans are very worried. some are saying so publically. if mitt romney doesn't reassure them within the first half hour of the debate, they are goners. now you're seeing already, a lot of the independent super pacs who are blessed with their own money are going elsewhere. they are desperately trying to keep a low margin in the senate. the democrats still hold it. republicans have faint hopes of taking it. they are looking at governors races, state legislatures, they are look at any place to protect themselves from what, at this minute, looks like a fairly comfortable win for president obama. that could change. it could still change. i have to stress. but there's nothing in the romney strategy so far that indicates they know how to turn it around. >> all right. howard fineman, thanks for your time tonight. good to have you here in denver. remember to answer tonight's question. share jr. thoughts on twitter at @edshow. coming up, chris christie says mitt romney will turn the presidential race upside down with his debate performance? chris california fee nous joins me for the co
these guys wearing the republican brand and mitt romney is associated with them. >> joy, republicans are having a hard time appealing to women voters because they don't like their outreach or because women don't like their policies. which of those is it? >> the problem is there really hasn't been any outreach. what's been stunning about the romney campaign is the extent to which they have decided not to really try to reach out to these groups they're doing poorly with on the basis of issues. mitt romney has had several opportunities to stand up and sort of lead his party and say, you know what? todd akin, you're wrong. that's not what our party stands for. >> calling sandra fluke a slut. you're wrong. >> stand up to rush limbaugh, we're not going to talk about women in a party i'm the leader of. he's so weak in terms of standing up to the loud and extreme voices he hasn't given himself an opportunity. all he's doing a dangling his wife out there and saying, hey, she's a woman, she likes me. >> krystal, isn't it the case when you look at the list of things republicans are advocating,
. republicans are hoping for a game changer in the next few days, but romney's path to victory is starting to disappear. president obama is ahead in all of the vital swing states needed for victory. if the election were held today an associated press analysis shows president obama would win at least 271 electoral votes. 270 votes wins the presidency. the romney campaign is struggling, to say the least. romney's own running mate was forced to admit how their campaign has stumbled. >> so, yeah, we have had some missteps, but at the end of the day, the choice is really clear. we're giving people a clear choice. >> paul ryan was asked about the tax cuts for the millionaires proposed by romney and ryan's budget plans. he was a guest on fox news sunday with chris wallace and the vice presidential candidate made some missteps of his own. >> how much would it cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> i'm just talking about -- the cut in tax rates. >> it's lower, all americans tax rates. it's revenue neutral. >> it's not unless you take away the deductions. we're going to get to that. the first half. lower
, top obama campaign officials have been poring over republican debate tapes, studying mitt romney. and according to one person familiar with the president's debate preparations, it has been exhausting work and the president is definitely out of practice, though, of course, the campaign has been trying to lower expectations. president obama has been practicing for wednesday's debate at the westin lake las vegas resort and spa, 17 miles from the las vegas strip. presidential debate veteran senator john kerry is participating in the mock debates, pretending to be a different patrician wealthy massachusetts pol, mitt romney. yesterday, in las vegas, the president tried to lower expectations. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. >> you are! >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> reporter: a new "washington post"/abc news poll shows the president enjoys advantages going into this debate. 66% say his policies have favored the middle class, while 57% think romney's, instead, would favor the wealthy. but the campa
that wouldn't bring republicans, anyone upset with the president with romney. he has to take full of that opportunity. there are republicans who dream of the opportunity to stand there toe-to-toe with the president. if there's any sense that he didn't do enough, they have to be very worried that people will have backed off, you know what, you had your chance, you didn't do it. >> greta: is it a game changer or an opportunity to put a dent in your opponent? >> who knows what can happen. sometimes big things happen in debates. there's no doubt it could happen. there's a tension in the romney campaign and the republican supporters between this idea of going after obama, kind of attacking him and being more aggressive toward him, which a lot of his supporters want to see. the focus group results that romney has looked at for months and months and months, in which he's trying to appeal to people who voted for obama in 2008, who don't want to be told they made a dumb decision, who want to be persuaded into voting for someone else. there's a attention, and romney will try to walk a line
